The Greek Theatre in LA was packed last Sunday for a sold-out show featuring legendary artists Deep Purple, Alice Cooper and the Edgar Winter Group.

Alice Cooper, known as “The Godfather of Shock Rock,” excited the audience with a visually stunning, theatrical show involving dolls, fake blood, a giant Frankenstein doll and macabre-costumed actors. We also saw Cooper get electrocuted and later get his head chopped off in a guillotine for murdering a woman.

The crowd sang along as Cooper performed his biggest hits, including “Poison”, “No More Mr. Nice Guy”, “I’m Eighteen” and the best for last, “School’s Out”. He also played tracks from his new LP Paranormal, including the album’s lone single “Paranoiac Personality”. At the age of 69, the dark and ghoulish Cooper proved that he is a true master of his craft.

British heavy metal pioneers Deep Purple closed out the night as part of their “Long Goodbye Tour”. They got the audience pumped as they opened with their hit “Highway Star” before the group continued to perform such hits as “Strange Kind of Woman”, “Space Truckin'”, “Smoke on the Water” and “Hush”.
